MISSION® miRNA, Negative Control 1

Sequence from Arabidopsis thaliana with no homology to human gene sequences


product line


storage temp.


General description

MISSION® miRNA Negative Controls are an essential component to any miRNA experiment. Using a negative control allows the researcher to create a baseline for mRNA knockdown effciency. The negative controls have been carefully selected, and have no known homology to known human gene sequences. Negative Control 1 is based upon a Arabidopsis thaliana sequence.


MISSION® miRNA, Negative Control 1 has been used as a negative control for miRNA transfections.

RNA editing, a widespread post-transcriptional mechanism, has emerged as a new player in cancer biology. Recent studies have reported key roles for individual miRNA editing events, but a comprehensive picture of miRNA editing in human cancers remains largely unexplored. Here
